A Peach & Gold Williamsburg Wedding | Williamsburg Wedding Photographer

  • Brian + Whitney

i looked at my “production” chart where all of my 2012 weddings are listed and I couldn’t believe that 3/4th’s of them have been shot!! It seems like just yesterday I was driving back from Brian and Whitney’s engagement shoot in Williamsburg!! The days and weeks fly by when you’re busy! As I prepped for their big day, I was excited because I’ve already seen Whitney in her gorgeous gown since she did a bridal session and I know how photogenic she is!! It was going to be a GOOD day. I just knew it!  Michael was able to accompany me for this wedding and it always makes it better to have a side kick…. especially when your side kick is your husband. :) It was a beautiful day from beginning to end.

 

Rome Georgia Wedding Photographer | Winshape Conference Center

  • Josh + Amanda | Engaged

when things just work out perfectly! Amanda and I have been emailing for MONTHS about her engagement and her wedding! We booked and I was thrilled because I love shooting destination weddings. I’ll be traveling to Georgia next spring for their beautiful wedding and I’m so excited to be there! However, it’s always tricky trying to get engagements done when you book a long distance wedding. We had emailed back and forth about the possibilities and then it clicked! I’ll be outside Atlanta at the Pursuit 31 conference! It was about an hour drive for Josh and Amanda and so we made it happen! They met me at Mt. Berry College….

September 2012 | Brittany

  • Coaching

I had the honor of meeting with Brittany of Brittany Claud Photography! We sat in my office and talked about everything from print labs to Bokeh. Last week I was super busy and so Michael took Bokeh to his grandparent’s house for a few days. I totally forgot that some of my coaching photographers… actually, ALL of them have wanted to meet Bokeh! Poor Britt, she missed out on the spastic ball of apricot colored fluff that we call our dog. He’s just been crazy recently!! whew! Two shoes have hit the trash can because of him recently!! Yikes!
